EcoLogo Forms Business Alliances

February 1, 2011

TerraChoice Environmental Marketing, a global leader in environmental certification and green marketing and exclusive manager of the EcoLogo Program, recently announced that the company has been acquired by ULC Standards, an independent, not-for-profit standards development organization.

This has allowed TerraChoice to join UL Environment (ULE) as part of the Underwriters Laboratories Inc. global network providing environmental services to companies around the world.

As a result of this new relationship, EcoLogo has been working internally toward integrating with ULE''s Sustainable Product Certification, while maintaining momentum and capitalizing on EcoLogo''s existing strengths in standards.

This is exciting news for clients of both ULE and EcoLogo and will mean greater collaboration and harmony in the world of environmental standards.

Additionally, EcoLogo and GreenWizard — a web-based expert system that allows architects, engineers and contractors to cross-search, compare and document products for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and green commercial construction — have announced their business alliance to co-promote EcoLogo-certified products in the GreenWizard database, which is a listing primarily focused on building and construction products.

By loading EcoLogo-certified standards and building products into the GreenWizard platform, EcoLogo-certified products will be easily available for architects, engineers and contractors who are searching for, comparing and documenting products for green commercial construction.
